An exchange is a great way to gain international experience while taking your Otago degree.
We suggest exchanges happen in your second year of study to best fit with the requirements of our Food Science and Consumer Food Science degrees. You will need to plan early and apply in your first year.
Where to start?
- Read the information for Otago Students considering going on exchange
- Check out which Universities offer Food Science and Technology programmes which may include suitable courses for exchange
- Interested in studying at the University of Minnesota?
An agreement for exchange with University of Minnesota, Department of Food Science and Nutrition is in place.
Find out more on our Minnesota information page or contact the Otago Global Exchange Adviser
The Otago exchange site has everything you need to know to apply for an exchange.
If you are accepted for the exchange programme, you will still need to confirm your courses with the Food Science Exchange Adviser Professor Phil Bremer to ensure they are a good fit for your degree.
